Comments Off on Changes….They Are a Coming’

Been pondering this for some time now, but the time draws nigh. This blog is about to undergo some major changes–in appearance, in focus, and in name. Target date: Labor Day. Why Labor Day? Well, we’ll be back from a much-needed little vacation, where I’ll have time to do some design work and planning, clear […]

And There Are Still Good People…

A few weeks ago Mika decided she wanted to do a yard sale to raise money for World Vision. (We’ve sponsored a girl from Malawi the past four years). Despite having already decided we weren’t doing a yard sale this year, we did. Today. Aside from the whole decluttering aspect, there were a few things […]

I’m grateful and excited to have been selected by Thomas Nelson Publishers to review the new book by Stephen Mansfield, The Faith of Barack Obama. The timing of both the book and the review is perfect: for the book, because of the obvious importance of this upcoming election; for the review because this blog will […]

Coming up on 18 months, Josh’s hair was beginning to get a little long… …but we couldn’t see shelling out $30 or so for some place like Fun Kuts. Plus Sammy wanted his hair buzzed again. So today JoAnn bought salon-type clippers. Buzzed Sammy. Cut mine, not quite buzzed. Then Josh’s. Now he looks like […]

The footprint fireworks sequence leading to the Birdnest arena–fake. Highly disappointing… Nearly as disappointing as Favre going to the Jets, but that’s another story.

Viatalk Responds?

Comments Off on Viatalk Responds?

Got an interesting comment on my recent post about my Viatalk issues that suggest that the company is doing some form of brand monitoring. This is a good thing. However, the response itself, not so much (copied below in the event they decide to delete it): Johnathan Frank said… If you are that unhappy, why […]

Irony of John Edwards…

Comments Off on Irony of John Edwards…

The “videographer” he had/is having an affair with created little snippets that were going to be used during the campaign to show his more relaxed, more normal side. Funny thing is that now that he’s admitted it (after forcefully denying, that is), those clips are being scoured, and an ironic thing came up. The song […]

Comments Off on John Edwards: Just as Dirty as the Rest

After more of than a year of denying the extramarital affair, we find out that John Edwards, the very wealthy John Edwards, supposed champion of the “common man”, really did, in fact, have an affair.

Since starting with Viatalk about 1.5 years ago, we’ve experienced irregular, sometimes spotty service and call quality. A few times more recently we’ve experienced either no service or all calls going to voicemail…not good. Here’s the most recent ticket I submitted: Author Contents Scott Kuhn Posted on 02 Aug 2008 02:25 PM All incoming calls […]
